Fast-food workers at San Francisco International Airport are striking to demand pay raises after three years of stagnant wages.

The group of 1,000 workers, who are members of the Unite Here Local 2 union, began their strike Monday. The walkout has no scheduled end date, the union said in a press release, and includes workers from 30 employers and 84 locations at the airport. They urged travelers to bring their own food during the strike so as to avoid crossing the picket line.
